Lawrence N. Caswell, 64: doting father, passionate motorcyclist
BRUNSWICK — Lawrence N. Caswell, 64, died July 26. Born in Brunswick on January 27, 1948, he was the son of Lillian (Miller) and the late Flavian “Babe” Nadeau. He attended elementary school in Brunswick and later in Lewiston. Throughout his youth he was an active Boy Scout, achieving the rank of Eagle Scout.
An avid musician, Caswell began playing the bass in his late teens. He was a member of The Innkeepers, a band with which he traveled throughout the northeastern United States and Canada.
Caswell loved motorcycling and the camaraderie that came with it. He touched the lives of friends and fellow riders in many ways. When not on his motorcycle, he enjoyed driving his Jeep, accompanied by his dog, Skittles, who brought much happiness to his life.
Caswell was passionate about his family and spent much time exploring his genealogy. He was delighted to learn of his Micmac heritage, leading to the discovery of relatives and experiences that infinitely touched his own life.
He was a member of several civic organizations, including the Masons and Knights of Columbus.
He is survived by his son, Ethan Caswell, of California; his parents, Lillian and Dudley Ervin, of Florida; his stepsister, Mrs. Stanley (Linda) Seiler of California; and nieces and many cousins who loved him dearly. He was predeceased by his father, Flavian Nadeau, and in 2006, his wife of 26 years, Linda Caswell.
Funeral services were held Aug. 1 at Demers-Desmond Funeral Home in Brunswick. A motorcycle procession to St. John’s Cemetery in Brunswick followed the service.
